Jack Welch's Family Supports Ron Paul

The wife of Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, said "All four of our children are huge Ron Paul followers."

Jack Welch goes on to pledge, "I will support the Republican candidate against the current government under any circumstances."

When Jack Welch and his wife are no longer with us, their four children will be voting for liberty candidates like Ron Paul.

Monetary Policy

Mainstream news is catching on to Ron Paul's view of getting control of America's monetary policy.  The mood of the nation is changing, and some in the mainstream press are beginning to understand Ron Paul's concerns with the Federal Reserve.

Presidential candidate Ron Paul has more than a few people talking about boring monetary policy at the Federal Reserve these days. ... The Wall Street Journal ran an op-ed by David Malpass on Thursday with Paul’s name in the headline, praising the Texas congressman for making Fed monetary policy a topic in the political campaign.

New Hampshire Democrats

While the media was focused on the Republican primary in New Hampshire, the Democrats also had a primary.  While Ron Paul took 2nd in the Republican primary, he also took 2nd in the Democratic primary.

Democrats in New Hampshire went to the polls to write-in Ron Paul.  If the Republicans were in this to win, they would recognize Ron Paul is the candidate who can take the White House from Obama.

The popular former governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, has some thoughts on the Republican primary:
Perhaps even more significant, every exit poll shows that Dr. Paul was the winner among young voters, independents and other “non-traditional” Republican primary voters. In other words, he did pretty darn well among those same demographic groups that elected Barack Obama.

What is "full disclosure"?

Ron Paul has advocated for a full and complete audit of the Federal Reserve (a private banking cartel authorized by Congress to set the price and availability of money).  Ron Paul's H.R. 459 is his latest attempt to allow the Government Accountability Office to do a full and complete audit.

In the spirit of fighting against transparency while pretending to be transparent, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York president, William C. Dudley, had a letter published in Wall Street Journal in which he blatantly lies:
The swaps, which have been used as a policy tool dating back to 1962, are fully disclosed to the public and their usage updated weekly on the Federal Reserve's website.
Full disclosure would include all of the details - which bank, what currenty, the date, the interest rate, and the term of the loan ("swap).
This is the website to which he refers. The website provides weekly summaries, not the details: "Operations during week ..."  This is not full disclosure.

Duplicating Work, Wasting Funds

Ron Paul has long argued that much of what the federal government does is not authorized by the constitution.  States have their own department of education to guide and regulate local school districts in each state.

Why do we spend $40 billion to fund a federal department of education?  Why not send that funding directly to the states?
